On this trip we ride through the incredible country between Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens. These massive volcanoes are surrounded by beautiful old growth forests with super, buff, singletrack weaving through them.
We begin on the Mt. Adams side with great views and beautiful forest camps. Then we head to the famous Lewis River Trail where we swoop and zoom in and around the giant Douglas firs following the course of the river. No trip to Mount St. Helen's would be complete without a visit to the Ape Cave Lava Tube, the longest lava tube in the United States. We take a break from our bikes mid-week to explore this amazing geologic feature.
We finish with the Ape Canyon ride to the Plains of Abraham right on the slope of Mount St. Helens. This is an incredible ride through the forest on the edge of the lava flow with stunning views of the peak and the pumice fields around it. While some of the singletrack is quite technical, the mileage is very reasonable and the climbing is fun and do-able. Intrigued? Give us a call for details! 800-845-2453.
